How You Can Help

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Good Grief!  There are a variety of volunteer opportunities for men and women who want to positively impact the healing after a death for children and teens. Whether serving as a Support Group Facilitator, assisting children in the activity room, serving dinners, representing Good Grief in the community, or helping with special events and fundraising ideas, our volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of the children and families we serve.

If you want to help support grieving children and teens and make an incredible contribution to these children, their families, and the community, please consider becoming a Good Grief volunteer.

Good Grief will consider each applicant on a case-by-case basis, and reserve the right to select individual's based on the best fit for the organization. To work directly with children we ask that you make a 6-9 month commitment and be willing to complete an 18-hour training.

  • Volunteer Orientations are held 3 times per year.
    Next Session Dates - To Be Announced (check back soon!)
  • Orientation reviews the philosophy behind our work and what the program looks like.
  • Orientation helps you decide where you might like to focus your volunteer efforts.
  • Volunteer Support Group Facilitators and Assistants participate in additional training.
  • Volunteers working directly with children will be asked to complete an application, personal references, and a criminal background check.

All dinners provided during the program are donated by the community. If you, your friends or your organization would like to donate a dinner please let us know.
